The pitfalls of sporting arrogance - Aussie style

A couple of weeks ago, this was what greeted the English cricket team.

Australian cricket coach John Buchanan has poured scorn on England and New Zealand, saying their lack of opposition in the one-day tri-series is undermining Australia's World Cup bid.

"In essence, the batting efforts of our opposition are not assisting the development of our bowlers' one-day skills, and the decision making that accompanies being placed under the microscope of competition."

So after England's 2-0 victory over the Aussies in the Commerweath Bank Cup, these headlines made for a pleasant change. Guess it proves Buchanan's point.
